The new intuitive Ribbon GUI

The Ribbon is designed to help you quickly find the commands that you need to complete a task. Commands are organized in logical groups, which are collected together under tabs. To reduce clutter, some tabs are shown only when needed. For example, the Table tab is shown only when a table is selected.

Data Dictionary and Database Explorer

The Data Dictionary can be used to define properties of controls that are used by the form builders. In this way, you can reuse property settings and minimize the amount of customization that you apply to the forms created by the builders.
The Data Dictionary can also be used to view the database catalog, change properties of the forms generated, and also import or export data dictionaries you've defined.

Built-in full-page design templates

CodeCharge Studio is installed with a number of built-in designs you can use, but you can also create and add new designs templates with Artisteer.

Master/Detail Builder

The simplest and most convenient way of building froms for edit Master/Detail record is to use the Master/Detail Builder.

Form Builders

Fully redesigned and improved Builders. Previously added Forms now can be edited with Builders.

Master templates for Pages and Panels

Master pages allow you to create a consistent layout and styling for the pages in your application. Master pages are important because you can design the layout and formatting of various content sections in one page, then apply the same styling to separate content pages in your web project instead of designing each web page separately. When users request the content pages, the pages are merged with a master page to produce output that combines the layout of the master page with the content from the content page

Custom HTML temlpates for builders

Builder output can be customized with user-defined HTML templates.

Preview Mode

Improved Preview Mode showing Include Pages, Translations, Master Pages, Live Data from Database, etc. without publishing to server.
